Para sa imo ini, ‘Nay! (“This is for you, Mom!” in Bikol)
This short story was written by my late mother, Jean Llorin, a long time ago in English. A few years back, she asked me to draw pictures to go with her story. I’ve translated the story in Filipino and added a few more important details that I felt the story needed. A thumbnail of the first page is shown below.
Click on the link below, not the thumbnail, to open the 4-page pdf file. All illustrations are by samutsamot_mom.
Feel free to share this story with your children, students, and friends, but do not do so for profit or my mother’s ghost will haunt you!
Please note that I am not a writer (I’m actually an engineering graduate), so feel free to leave comments on how I can improve the story. Thanks!
